Bedside Touchscreen



  • I’ve been working on this along with a couple of modules for navigation of MMM-pages and controlling our Sleepnumber bed.

    It uses a 3.5" Waveshare touchscreen on a pi3. I have it setup with MMM-pages for showing a clock, the weather, MMM-MyCommute, my sleepnumber module. Then I created a module for the navigation, which has previous/next and home options.

    We love the Sleepnumber bed, but hate the SleepIQ phone app to control it. It takes navigating to 3 different pages and several more clicks just to change the bed position. This has all the bed presets to change it in one click (maybe two if I have to click home). It has a buttons to toggle between sleepers, then all the position buttons apply to that sleeper. I’m working on adding the sleep number, head/foot adjustments, and foot warming next.

    This 3.5" screen doesn’t have a brightness control, so I may switch to a 5" screen as there is a hack to control the screen’s pwm from the pi.

    Looks very good.

    I have a similar building but my usage is different (on my desk with a DHT22 sensor)
    Your case looks great! Where did you get that? I have the case printed by a friend but unfortunately it does not look that good

    It is this one…Case for Raspberry Pi 3/3.5" Touchscreen https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B5YG4LC/

    Though I have a clone of the waveshare lcd, and the screen is 180* off, so it’s shifted to the right as you can see in the photo. I’ll probably trim off what is covering the right side to get a full view.
